KNEEL BEFORE ZOD! Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire), who plays Kryptonian villain General Zod in the upcoming Superman movie ‘Man of Steel’, has a lot of praise for Henry Cavill’s performance as the Big Blue Boy Scout and has seen a good chuck of the unfinished film. Shannon offers up these two words: “MIND BLOWING”. Here’s a snippet of the interview:

“I’ve seen a little bit because I did some ADR for the film. It’s a very long process. Zack [Synder] puts a lot of time in post-production, like all his films because he’s such a visual stylist, and there’s a lot of computer-generated effects. But the little snippet I saw was pretty mind-blowing…and it wasn’t even finished. I always felt like I was in a scene with Superman. I never looked at [Henry Cavill] and thought that’s just somebody trying to be Superman — he felt like the real deal. I really admire Henry’s work ethic. I really haven’t seen anybody in this business work quite that hard. Obviously it’s a tremendous responsibility, and an intimidating one, to wear that suit. But he had the confidence and the work ethic to accomplish it.”

As I’ve said before Superman is by no means my favorite superhero, but for some reason this may be my most anticipated comic book movie of 2013. I’ve been waiting a long time for WB to get it right. Have hope.

Man of Steel flies in to theaters on June 14th, 2013.

Stay tooned 😛
